Milwaukee's Protective Payee Program: Evaluating its performance and role in the larger case management system

This report was initiated by a request from the directors of the Protective Payee program agencies for the Public Policy Forum to conduct an independent assessment of the program’s strengths and weaknesses. We viewed this as an opportunity not only to provide a needed evaluation of a program that is serving hundreds of our region’s neediest citizens, but also as a chance to provide Milwaukee-area policymakers and citizens with analysis that would be useful in the context of Milwaukee County’s effort to redesign its adult mental health system.
